TSF had concerns about Nikolay Davydenko facing Davis Cup teammate and v-neck posterboy Marat Safin in the second round of the French Open, especially after Safin dismantled Jean-Rene Lisnard in the match prior (granted, Lisnard is ranked 228th in the world). But it turned out to be a clay cakewalk for Kolya, who won 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-2.
Perhaps it was Marat’s lack of jewelry that did him in. Where are his necklaces?!
